Because of the Pill

To celebrate #ThxBirthControl Day, we wanted to share this poem on how the birth control has given independence, freedom and so much more to women around the world.

Because of the pill, women can control their periods and their pain

Because of the pill, women can choose when to have children

 

Because they can control their periods and their pain and

Because they can choose when to have children,

they can go to school regularly and

they can get a higher education and

they can work

 

Because they can get a higher education and

Because they can work

They are on equal footing with men

 

Because they are on equal footing with men

There is financial equity and they can make more money

 

Because there is financial equity

They can be financially independent

 

Because they can be financially independent

They can be personally independent

 

Because they can be personally independent

They can be respected in the home and have equity in marriage

 

And the best part is – women can choose to have sex for fun and not worry about having kids.
